QUESTION: I know I NEED TO VISIT, but I really want to know what just makes Houston UGLY? I mean, I've been to places that are flat, and they are nice and appealing.

I never said it was ugly. I find the areas along the bayou very quaint. The rice paddies and flat pine, forests plowed for MPC tracts ugly.

My job, I was offered to transfer and it would have been a good opportunity, but I wanted to make sure I would not regret it from a personal stand-point.

I am turning the offer down tomorrow.

Well, if moving to Houston is going to benefit you, why turn it down despite it being "ugly?"

Family comes first for me, I see people all the time taking promotions with-out even thinking what it will do to their family, that is not me. I do very well as it is, not a big deal.
